by a professor geoffrey hazard, a distinguished professor of law at uc hastings. the professor is a leading expert in the field of civil procedure of legal ethics and is good at asking questions. it is my pleasure to introduce our very special guest, stephen zack, president of the american bar association. with nearly 400,000 members, it is the largest volunteer professional membership organization in the world. mr. zack is the first hispanic american to serve as the president and the second to be born abroad. he was only 14 when his family emigrated from cuba under harrowing circumstances, including last minute detention by the secret police. he made it here. in two lines -- and two lines come to mind when i think of him. "this is my country, land of my choice. this is my country, here i found voice." what a voice it is. he earned his aba at the university of florida and he is now in their hall of fame. he is a partner in the miami office of the national law firm. his clients range from former vice president al gore to philip morris, to the national geographic society, and he is listed in
nobody bought it or sold it. it is homemade, how is law enforcement in this country going to grapple with homemade high-powered weapons. what will they do when they print the 3-d fully automatic machine gun? the government agency that will have to deal with the challenges of this new technology when it happens is the atf. last month when president obama unveiled his proposed gun reforms at the white house, one thing he asked congress to do was confirm the nominee to run atf, a man named todd jones who has been acting as deputy director of the atf for five years. president obama asked congress to stop hindering law enforcement, and he called congress out for allowing anybody to be confirmed as director of the atf for six years now. this week we got news that even that part of what president obama confirmed on guns, even just asking the director of the law enforcement agency that is concerned with federal gun laws, yeah, republicans in congress may just oppose that too. they don't want anybody running that after six years. republicans increasingly make the case that we shoul
and then the potential for law enforcement, as well as commercial enterprises to use this technology, as well, so there is a multi-facetted problem that i think citizens ought to be concerned about. in fact, you may ever seen today where the attorney general sent a memo to rand paul who had asked the question about whether the president could authorize a drone strike in the u.s. michael: let's take a leukoowe colonel davis, i want to interrupt you so we can take a look at that letter and the viewers can see it. this is an answer to that letter which you provided us: michael: that does actually at least create a third conversation about drones, a third way of discussing them, doesn't it? >> right. it should be concerning, i would hope, to the american public that this possibility that the president could decide to launch a drone strike here in the u.s. on u.s. citizens. if you read the letter, it starts out saying we've never done this before, we've got no intention of doing this, we've got great law enforcement and great federal coats but hey you know, it's possible there could be some extraordin
ways and means oversight committee, part of the committee for writing tax laws. we have douglas holtz he didn't with us. regarding how the middle class will be treated with obamacare, it turns out the promises are not true. >> i think that is unmistakable. obamacare has a lot of tax in it. this is $800 billion in taxes and when you hear that that is kind of a number, you wonder who will foot the bill. a lot of these will turn out to be higher insurance premiums, some of them will be taxes directly on the policy. a lot of them are going to harm economic growth. in the end, we know how many workers are out there and we know how poor the income growth has been. gerri: even now, people don't really understand what we are going to be on the hook for. health insurance premiums taxes, which you've just mentied, medical device taxes, it is quick to be devastating to companies. people are going to lose jobs and employer individual insurance is going to rising costs as well. we were promised that it wasn't going to raise the deficit. but will it? >> i don't see others how there's any way that t
to residency. for him, jeb bush argues this isn't about the particular but to get it signed into law. >> so do you think there's a significant difference between marco rubio who clearly is on board for a path way to citizenship? >> there is a difference in terms of the proposal that jeb bush makes but i think ultimately if jeb bush were in the senate or were the president, i don't think it would matter. i think he's showing that he's flexible. some might call it a flip-flop and as far as jeb bush is concerned, we need to do something, something needs to be accomplished. he doesn't seem to be bothered by the criticism. his position is, look, the system we have right now does not work. whatever we come forward and propose as a solution is better than the unworkable reality of today. >> we'll have more during the 6:00 p.m. hour including the possibility, he's leaving it open, that he may run for presidency in 2016. is there a third bush potentially in the run for president? we'll talk about that. thank you, jake. >> thank you, wolf. >>> two states have legalized drug use. washington needs to crac
are -- they have the absolute right to choice. and it is the law of the land. so that is where we are with that subject. now, on the gay rights, here is how i feel about that. ten years ago, this was a huge issue, absolutely huge issue. ten years from now it will not be a huge issue. it's the fastest movement of a wave of understanding, of pure rights and equal protection under the law. >> even in south carolina you think there has been an attitude change? >> there has definitely been an attitude change in south carolina. and we see it moving rapidly, as a matter of fact. now south carolina is a state that does not -- does not allow same-sex marriage. but we'll see where that takes us in ten years. there is a definite movement, a definite change of attitude in south carolina, yes. >> okay. let's say you win the primary, and then it's, of course, i would pick maybe mark sanford on the other side. i don't know what the polling is there, but it would certainly be great to see you defeat him. could you defeat him? >> well, ed, let me be really clear about something first. we have got

laden's son-in-law who we find out is now in manhattan awaiting a civilian trial. how did that happen? i blame gitmo. this terror sneak and the drones employed as exterminators exist solely to avoid saying that you were wrong about the beauty of gitmo. what is gitmo? gitmo is really just a reminder in this worlddvil and that evil needs a cage when it's caught. so as world leaders kiss the c dead hand of an anti-american tyrant, north korea threatens annihilation and iran gears up for war, it's about time for the teen-agerte in chief to wise up. there is a big world that hatest you and no matter how many apology tours you make or heartfelt videos or how much yoo bow, they still do. so eric, why new york city? cheaper flights than cuba? >> no idea. this could be one of the biggest mistakes they've ever made. once he lands here, once you read him his mar randa rights, it's over. he'll get the full benefits of the legal system. no interrogation. it has to be a speedy trial. in gitmo, you keep them there, you can take loty of time to fid out what k he knows and what ele the other baind guys w

the health care law, obamacare. he got his stimulus. and he was just on a roll. and then the house republicans were elected and brought some balance to government, and he has really been frustrated with that. >>steve: sure. you know what his recipe to success is going to be? he's going to do his best to make you guys in the republican party on capitol hill look like nitwits, incompetents and bad guys. he's trying to right now with the sequester. >> he wants to play the role of santa claus where he promises everything to everyone despite the fact that we don't have any money to do that. and we are trying to be responsible. you're right; with the sequester, look, any time you reduce spending, you're going to have an impact. it's going to be an impact in my district. but he has tried to oversell this. and i believe he has purposefully making it as painful as possible instead of cutting waste. he's putting -- he's protecting waste so he can have the pain for workers in programs to make his political point. why doesn't he cut some waste? are we that efficient where there's no waste in t
my relatives in newark for a while. and i was able to go to rutgers law school the next year because of a national defense student loan. so i'm running, because of the opportunities that i had -- i'm under no illusion, if i grew up now into the circumstances that i was born into, i wouldn't be here as a state senator running for the governor of new jersey. >> senator, one of the local papers said you should not be written off, and having just heard your introductory remarks of this campaign, i don't think you can be written off in new jersey. and they said, the local papers said that you are the anti-christie. how do you see yourself as the anti-christie? >> well, you know, i see myself as, there's certainly a stark contrast between myself and governor christie. governor christie supports. his idea of jump-starting the economy is to propose a trickle-down income tax cut last area. and me and his budget addressed this year, he stated his support for it again. i support property tax cuts for everyone else. you know, he coddles millionaires while the rest of new jerseyans are st

,000 people without power. the state of arkansas will now have the most restrictive abortion law in the country. republicans dominating the legislature overrode a gubernatorial veto today. the new law includes a near-ban on abortions after the 12th week of pregnancy. it's slated to take effect this summer, but a court challenge is certain. a small group of u.s. senators today filibustered the nomination of john brennan to be director of the c.i.a. they focused on whether the government would ever use drone aircraft to attack americans, inside the u.s. kentucky republican rand paul cited a letter from attorney general eric holder. it said drone strikes on u.s. soil might be considered in an extraordinary circumstance, such as 9/11. paul said he's alarmed. >> you can't take away someone's life and liberty without due process or an indictment. so it should trouble every american. i can't imagine that there wouldn't be an american in our country that would not be troubled that we're talking about killing non combatants in american with drone strikes. >> several other republicans join

immigration system that actions have consequences. in this case that those who violated the laws can remain but cannot obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship. to do otherwise would signal once again that people who circumvent the system can still obtain the full benefits of american citizenship. it must be a basic prerequisite for citizenship to respect the rule of law. now, that's a far cry from what he said last year, as late as last summer, presumably when he was writing this book, when he was seen as one of his party's most progressive voices on immigration. listen to what he told charlie rose back in june. >> you have to deal with this issue. you can't ignore it, and so either a path to citizenship, which i would support, and that does put me probably out of the mainstream of most conservatives, or a path to legalization, a path to residency of some kind. >> ron reagan, read the tea leaves for me. he seems more hardened now in his resolve against a path towards citizenship. you'd expect the reverse, i think, given the direction of his own party in the last couple weeks and months.

're the only ones of who have common law christian religion, private property rights and free market. >> and in your book from 2011, "what would the founders say," one of the questions you ask there is, is the government responsible for protecting the land and private property? what's the answer to that question? .. the people. >> host: what about the question of money supply in the government? >> guest: that is interesting. take it back a little ways. in 1990-'91 i was invited to a meeting in europe, only time i have been to europe to a meeting. there were a lot of big brains there. going down the danube with five nobel prize winners and i wasn't one of them and it was milton friedman, and headed debate with milton friedman, mr. freemarket about free and competitive money and he was arguing the government should control the money supply. competitive money, reliable economy with fewer panic. >> religion, what would the founders say? >> the founders were unanimous the government should not establish a religion nor should it prevent the worship of any sport. every state constitution ha

of the law in three ways. enforcement of the law at the border, enforcement of the law at the workplace to insure only people entitled to get a job are in fact hired and to insure people don't overstay their visas. if the administration is signaling it has no real commitment to enforcing the law, which this administration seems to be doing, then it will be very, very difficult for those people who are wary of the administration to make the other part of the bargain, namely to grant the citizenship for illegal status. that is why i think it is very problematic with respect to getting comprehensive immigration reform. maybe, i'm not going to say the white house doesn't want it because they appear to want it but if they really want it think need to be bending over backward to demonstrate to members of congress we will do everything they can to enforce the law. martha: what about the jeb bush issue, any thoughts on that he have about i let you go? >> just briefly. it seems to me was not saying a contradiction this what i'm saying before and what i'm saying now. it is all part of the grand b

in terms of not wanting there to be a special advantage for people who have broken the law. what he's outlined is something i've thought about for a long time and ultimately concluded it isn't good for the country to have millions of people who are permanently barred from applying for citizenship. it's been a disaster for europe. rubio said whatever is forged will have the white house's imprint. is this a friendly rivalry? here's something to remember about jeb bush, he hasn't run a race since 2002, and the backlash he's received in the last 24 hours could either convince him he doesn't have the stomach for a run because this is the way the world we live in, apparently, or it could steel him for what to expect over the next 2 1/2 years. either way he's getting a taste of what it is like on the campaign trail. >> venezuela's socialist strongman was a thorn in america's side, a leader who rode a wave of anti-capitalist sentiment. he leaves a political vacuum and a lot of questions about what happens next. he led to prominence when he led hundreds of soldiers in a failed coup in 1992.
